About Glide Health

Glide Health is the world’s first cross-functional revenue intelligence product for healthcare providers, which reduces denials, appeals costs and administrative waste by timely interventions delivered across the front office, treatment pathway planning and the back-office. The product delivers reduced cash collection cycles through intelligent denials management, improved patient engagement through affordable treatment pathways and increased revenues through reduced rejections.

Glide Health comes pre-built with deep domain knowledge about payers and managed care plans, which drives its highly sophisticated AI-based modeling of payer behavior customized to individual patients and their managed care plans. It preempts possible errors or gaps in claims by intervening in the front-office by ensuring requirements like prior authorizations are met. It digitally guides clinical care by offering customized pathway plan options that are more affordable for patients and optimizes revenue collections for the provider by integrating with practice management platforms. The patients’ liabilities and payer collectibles are modeled, while the patient is still with the provider long before the claims are processed in the back-office. This paves the way for better payment assurance from the patients and very accurate revenue projections for the provider. These early interventions significantly reduce the administrative costs of managing revenue cycle and shortens cash collection cycles through integrations with existing RCM platforms.

About the Role

The Data Scientist will drive the design and development of key artificial intelligence (AI) components of Glide Health data platform including rules intelligence engine, models for rule extraction, data structures for different rule categories and prediction models of payor behavior.
